This book examines the feeling that we often refer to as ‘nostalgia’ from the perspective of writers and artists located on the imperial, Soviet, and Post-Soviet periphery of Russian culture who regard the center of the culture from which they have been excluded with varying degrees of longing and ambivalence. The literary and artistic texts analyzed here have been shaped by these authors' ruminations on social and psychological marginalization, a process that S. Boym has called ‘reflective nostalgia’ and that the authors of this volume also refer to as ‘toska’.
